The Workforce Innovation Cohort on Disability and Employment launched with 18 states from across the country to address disability and employment issues. The state and local teams were comprised of a cross-section of WIOA core and required program partners and other key stakeholders that focused on three topic areas: Accessibility, Customer Service, and Employer Engagement.
Over the course of six months, each of the teams engaged in peer learning activities. Through research, brainstorming, discussion, and cross-state collaboration, three teams within the cohort developed and piloted capstone products to address the following cohort challenge questions:
In jointly examining the above questions, cohort members collaborated to develop tools to help further maximize seamless service delivery, universal access, and improved outreach to employers. Join to learn more about these tools and how you can apply them in your own state.
